Considering the price, it is an excellent option for Video editors or Creative professionals. Also, you can play most titles at 1080P using the GTX 1650, but it is no match for the higher variants with 1660Ti or 2060 MaxQ when it comes to gaming.

But if you have mixed gaming usage and work, this is a decent deal. Also, a Legion 5i is available on Amazon for a price tag of 69k that comes with the Intel Core i5, 10th Gen processor, 8 GB ram, and 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD 120 Hz display. The laptop has the Nvidia GTX 1650 Graphics card and is available for Rs. 72,990.

Also, Lenovo has launched another variant with the GTX 1650 Ti and keeps all other specs the same as mentioned above.

The GTX 1650 Ti and Intel Core i5 models are available for Rs. 74,990, which I think is much better than going with the GTX 1650 model, considering the price difference is very little.

Lenovo Legion, 5 with AMD Ryzen 4600H and GTX 1650 or with 1650 Ti, is a better option for most people than the Legion 5i with Intel i5 and Nvidia GTX 1650.
